IQAir helps you take control over the air quality in your workspace.
Fine and ultrafine particles on IQAir filter fibers.
Proven performance against ultrafine particles
Ultrafine particles are smaller than 0.1 microns. By sheer number, about 90% of all airborne particles are this size. The primary source of ultrafine particles is combustion from motor vehicles, refineries, industrial plants and even cooking. Viruses are also ultrafine particles. The small size of ultrafine particles enables them to be easily inhaled, deposited into the lungs and absorbed into the blood. They have been linked to heart attacks, strokes, asthma and even cancer.
Manufacturers of ordinary air filtration systems claim only that their systems filter particles larger than 0.3 microns. IQAir is different. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration is proven and certified to filter up to 99.5% of all particles down to 0.003 microns – the smallest particles that exist. Independent testing by laboratories and government agencies verifies the effectiveness of IQAir technology against ultrafine particles. When it comes to protection against ultrafine particulates, IQAir is the proven choice.
Potentially harmful mercury vapors are generated and dispersed into the dental office air as a result of placing or removing amalgam fillings. Dental offices can help protect staff and patients by capturing aerosolized vapors in the air.
1. The IQAir Dental Series Pro: Provides exceptional filtration for mercury vapors, disinfectant smells and a wide range of VOCs with 12 pounds of granular impregnated alumina, activated carbon and impregnated activated carbon.
2. The Dental Series Hg FlexVac™ System (pictured on left): Provides maximum protection against mercury vapors due to a source capture arm and specialized mercury filtration.
Filtration of even the smallest particles
Unlike other air purifiers, IQAir's HyperHEPA filtration technology is proven to effectively filter ultrafine particles, the smallest and most harmful particles in the air. IQAir HyperHEPA filtration technology is effective against particles all the way down to 0.003 microns in diameter – the smallest particles that exist.
Certified at the factory
IQAir individually tests each and every Dental Series air purifier at the factory to ensure that the particle filtration efficiency and airflow of each system meet published specifications. Electronic laser particle counters sample the air at the air purifier outlet to verify that the system is performing to efficiency standards in reality, not just theory. The results of each test are detailed in a hand-signed Certificate of Performance, which is shipped from the factory in the box with every Dental Series system.
Filtration of viruses of all sizes
The prevention of contaminated dental equipment is always a priority for dental practices, but viruses and other contaminants can quickly spread through the air in a dental office. Drilling and other procedures can increase the presence of airborne viruses, including viral hepatitis, which is typically as small as 0.05 microns in diameter. Conventional air purifier technologies are ineffective against particles of this size. IQAir’s HyperHEPA filtration in the Dental Series has an efficiency of 95% against even these tiniest viruses and other contaminants, offering an additional level of protection for staff and patients.
